Publisher's Summary

In this second book of the series, Henrietta and Clive delightfully rewrite Pride and Prejudice - with a hint of mystery!

Newly engaged, Clive and Henrietta now begin the difficult task of meeting each other’s family. “Difficult” because Clive has neglected to tell Henrietta that he is in fact the heir to the Howard estate and fortune, and Henrietta has just discovered that her mother has been hiding secrets about her past as well. When Clive brings Henrietta to the family estate to meet his parents, they are less than enthused about his impoverished intended. Left alone in this extravagant new world when Clive returns to the city, Henrietta finds herself more at home with the servants than his family, much to the disapproval of Mrs. Howard - and soon gets caught up in the disappearance of an elderly servant’s ring, not realizing that in doing so she has become part of a bigger, darker plot. 

As Clive and Henrietta attempt to discover the truth in the two very different worlds unraveling around them, they both begin to wonder: Are they meant for each other after all?

Romance and Mysteries

A Ring of Truth is the second novel in the bestselling Henrietta and Inspector Howard Series of romantic mysteries set in mid-1930s Chicago, by award-winning author Michelle Cox.

The action of A Ring of Truth picks up exactly where the previous book, A Girl Like You, ended. Our two main protagonists, the young, poor, beautiful Henrietta and the serious Inspector Clive Howard are head-over-heels in love, they get engaged and it's time to meet each other’s families. However, when Henrietta learns about a missing house servant, she can't resist a good mystery and she is pulled into another dangerous situation. Add to that the fact that her own mother appears to keep dark secrets, Hen and Clive have to unravel more than one mystery.

Award-winning actor and narrator Jane Entwistle returns once again to the Henrietta and Inspector Howard series with another excellent performance. She reads beautifully and manages to instantly pull the listener into this enthralling tale. With a clear talent for voices, young and old, male or female, Jane Entwistle is the perfect narrator for this great romantic mystery.

If you are in the mood for a cosy, but immersive historical novel with great characters, A Ring of Truth by Michelle Cox might be just the one you were looking for. I can't wait to see what's next for our heroes in the upcoming books...

This is exhausting!

The first book in this series was okay but not great. I thought I'd give the series another chance, but the inner monologues and dialogs in this series are so badly written and exhausting to listen to. There's almost no action - it's all crowded out by inane ramblings by the two main characters. There's nothing here.
